Firefighters responded to the burning home Wednesday night and discovered flames coming from the back of the duplex. The Advocate newspaper says crews extinguished the fire, but were then told two people were trapped in one of the units. They discovered the girl and a man inside. Both were taken in critical condition to a hospital, where the girl later died.
